BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford men's basketball team will look for its second-straight win as it heads to Mount Aloysius Saturday for an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference game.

Pitt-Bradford is coming off a thrilling 81-79 win over D'Youville Wednesday night.

Christian Kelly-Perkins tied his career high with 31 points to lead the Panthers. The senior also reached the 1,000-point plateau for his collegiate career with a three-pointer 10 minutes into the second half.

Dylan Niedermeyer scored 15 points – all in the first half—while Sahlil Harris dropped 17 and Dylan Mitchell scored 12.

Pitt-Bradford is looking to earn the season sweep of Mount Aloysius as the Panthers defeated the Mounties 82-73 on Dec. 16.

The three-ball was working for the Panthers that day as Jeffrey Fry knocked down eight three-pointers, a season-high for the Panthers, to lead all scorers with 25 points.

Malique McCoy scored 15 points and Niedermeyer chipped in 11 of his own.

As a team, the Panthers made 13 three-pointers, their most in a single game so far this season. That ties the most for the program since Jan. 4, 2017 against Penn State-Altoona and March 4, 2009, against Washington & Jefferson.

Kelly-Perkins has elevated his scoring average to the team's best at 12.3 points per contest. Desmond Brogsdale (11.4 points per game) and Niedermeyer (10.2 points per game) also average in double-figures. 

Niedermeyer remains the team's top rebounder at 6.5 boards per game and Reggie Rogers has the best assists per game average with 3.6 dimes per contest.

Saturday's game is set for a 1 p.m. tipoff.
